    There is a new Trojan program making the rounds, which is sent via e-mail with the spoofed (phony) e-mail address windowsupdate@microsoft.com, but really contains a program that downloads another program designed to connect to a Russian Web site.

    Don't be fooled by this hoax. Microsoft does not send updates via e-mail. For more info about this new threat, see:

    I'm sure we all know by now that Microsoft never attach anything to any e-mail ever. :)
